"Domes" hanging in a penthouse apartment in Valencia
Although having ample ceiling space is not needed to display an art mobile, there is definitely no harm in using it if you have it. This appartment in Valencia, designed and decorated with a taste that is refreshing and exciting, is on two levels with a front area that uses the space of both levels, creating the feeling of a spacious loft - "Domes" hangs over this area. My friend Tish wanted this mobile done in colours that reminded her of the glowing yellow colours of the old town in Cadiz, the light just beginning to deepen towards sunset.

Here are a couple of photos of 2 large scale mobiles I currently have on show in Casa Matisse. The larger of the two, at 2.5 metres wide by 1.5 metres long, is the largest I have made so far and I had a very interesting time grappling with it. The other one is a more modest 1.5 by 1.2. If you are passing nearby … go and have a look and let me know what you think of them. Casa Matisse is a very friendly art shop managed and owned by Maite Morell (plus she is a wonderful artist herself). It’s located in Grabador Selma, which is a small street between San Vicente and Barón de Carcer right next to Plaza del Ayuntamiento.
